The Victory is an "It" Girl!!!!
Having just disembarked the Carnival Victory We can say that this is a great "short voyage" cruiser with a phenomenal ambiance!! This is a ship where the the ship, the staff ,and the crew all have their acts together!!! Featuring Carnival and Fincantieri's successful time tested layout this is a ship that will have you coming back for more!!!
Is it a "FunShip" Oh Yeah! It really does manage to capture the original essence of their first ship, the Mardi Gras, which whom I cruised upon too many years ago!! Something which Carnival has been getting away from and forgetting!!! On the Victory it is still there..by a mile. All Carnival needs to do is to bring back the Steel Drum Bands and the Victory will have the true essence of Caribbean cruising hands down over all the competition
The cruise director "Goose" is a match for Carnival's Legendary John Heald and the shows are puuuurfect with "Living in America" beyond outstanding!!! The meals were awesome in the MDR with excellent, nay exceptional, service. This ship is fun for both the first time and the experienced cruiser alike. I am pleased to recommend this ship to My fellow cruisers. We had a fabulous time at a most reasonable price!!.
